How Does Roundup Induce Cancer?
Roundup is merely the brand name of the weedkiller. The weedkiller Roundup alone does not cause cancer or any other illness. However the herbicide it contains does and that herbicide is the very potent, broad spectrum herbicide glyphosate. As with all cancer causing agents aka carcinogens, glyphosate disrupts and interferes with biological processes at the cellular level. Cells divide and repair themselves all the time in humans. If no carcinogens or possible carcinogens are present everything is fine. But if a carcinogen is present in cells the cells ability to control the division is hindered and the cell cannot regulate itself. This leads to the very rapid division of cells and the lymph system cannot stop the process. From there tumors grow and many parts of the body are impacted.

There are many different types of cancer associated with Roundup use. These are Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, B-Cell Lymphoma, T-Cell Lymphoma, Hairy Cell Leukemia, Multiple Myeloma, blood cancer, brain cancer, stomach cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer and prostate cancer.
